Inspired by the achievement in the past 7 years of consistent program delivery; We have re-invented our approach to Child Survival, Welfare and Development as illustrated in the Theory of Change model

Our child focused and community based action is anchored on the recently launched a transitional 2018-2020 Strategic plan (Drive 2020) has been crafted with the core ecosystem of a Child in mind.

The goal to contribute towards “Building communities for optimal child care” approaches see to address; the need for services, right policies, participation and evolving contexts. Strategic approaches include:

• Deriving far reaching impact for children through dedicated sectors that provide critical services for Child survival, welfare and development working along with caretakers and communities.
• Champion Child participation in the space for advocacy, art and production.
• Pool indigenous knowledge for optimal child care through deliberate partnerships with CBOs, academia, communities, and media etc. with particular attention to the promotion of positive deviances.

Our action is geared towards optimal child survival, welfare and development working alongside caretakers, families and communities. Due to rigors associated with resource availability, the programme further prioritizes Disaster hit, marginalized, and underserved communities.
